One Day Family Constellation Workshop with The Inner Process
Widening the Horizon of all Possibilities
“…… to be lost is to be fully present, and to be fully present is to be capable of being in uncertainty and mystery.” Rebecca Solnit : A Field Guide to Getting Lost
Come and feel what happens to your body when you are able to step into the present, into the immediate, aware moment. Fear consumes and constricts the body, and the heart. This constriction of fear and anxiety of living closes us down to even the small joys of life. The heart closes, and even if we look at another we do not ‘see‘ them. And therefore we cannot meet them fully in relationship.
These states of being take you away from the present – from your body, from yourself. Your horizon of awareness, shrinks; your view of the world is diminished. How to make meaning of your world when you can only see a small slice of it?
What does make life worth living?
Life is relational. Our relationships and the ways that we are in connection with others, feeds and nurtures us. Gives us joy, allows the heart to open, for ourselves and for the other, who then can feel that they are really ‘seen‘. What a gift to be able to give and to receive.
The horizon widens and understanding deepens an opening up of many more possibilities of meaning and ways of living in the world. What has been hidden may now be revealed in this widening world now rich with meaning.
Stand in your place of belonging
The ancestors are representatives themselves, even as we represent them in Constellations, for intrinsic resonance and integration. In the call and response between us and them, both are held, and the future is invited to unfold rather than replay. Constellations allow us to know these deepest positions and pleasures. They show us the living genogram and our places in it. They invite us to know the depth of our significance – and then leave the choice with us.
…..to be lost is to be fully present. To be bewildered is to have the senses confused so much so that they are fully heightened, alive. Poet, Emilia Philips
The relationship between mind, body, brain and heart
Our inner selves are in relationship with complex connections between mind, brain and body, with states of being in our worlds emerging from these relationships. The quote below comes from an article in Quartz that explores a conversation between these connections.
After much discussion, they decided that a key component of the mind is: “the emergent self-organizing process, both embodied and relational, that regulates energy and information flow within and among us.” It’s not catchy. But it is interesting, and with meaningful implications.
The most immediately shocking element of this definition is that our mind extends beyond our physical selves. In other words, our mind is not simply our perception of experiences, but those experiences themselves. [Dan] Siegel argues that it’s impossible to completely disentangle our subjective view of the world from our interactions.
